"A Scoundrel's Apology, Almost" as written by and Jesse Budd....
Well I'm sorry for the trust that I took
Before we'd spoken of
The things we had to speak about
And now that trust is broken in two
One piece for me and one for you

Oh well I'm sorry that
I never even gave you a warning
That I would steal the birds song
And the fresh air from your mornings
And the key to a world behind a door
That you would have walked through

And I'm sorry for the times
I forced your truth into lying
For the knots in your life
I've left you untying
Tied only to your loneliness at last

Oh then for pulling on the string
That unraveled and unwound you
As I wound up all the clocks
And stood them all around you
All mocking your future
As coldly as they're killing off your past

And so we sit, once apparently conjoined but no longer
The surgery of separation finds me the stronger
And you too weak to offer even scorn

Oh but I am not your oxygen you look away
Turning instead to face the road
Of your unanswerable yearning
For someone you would love more than me
But who will never now be born
